HUMANE ANIMAL TREATMENT
- Demkota was designed with animal welfare in mind using the expertise of renowned animal scientist, Temple Grandin, Ph.D. Her methods for holding pens and walkways, along with providing feed, water, bedding and heated floors year round, result in a calmer and more efficient process, which is better for the animals.
- Demkota voluntarily utilizes the animal welfare guidelines set forth by the North American Meat Institute in the “Humane Handling Guidelines and Audit Guide”.
- All employees working in critical points of animal handling are trained initially and on an annual basis using the methods and principals of Dr. Temple Grandin.
